When families go on holidays in America, there’s a good chance they’re going to Orlando. With an abundance of theme park choices, sunshine, shopping, dining, and nightlife, Orlando truly has something for everyone.

But if you’ve been to Orlando before, don’t be fooled – it’s constantly changing by adding new attractions and rides for families to enjoy. Let’s take a look at what’s new in Orlando theme parks for 2010.


SeaWorld Orlando

Aquatica
, the new water park at SeaWorld Orlando, is unique in the sense that it offers visitors a combination of water park fun plus the opportunity to view tropical fish and striking Commerson dolphins, up close and personal. Besides a huge 80,000 square foot white sandy beach, Aquatica offers thirty-six water slides, rivers and lagoons, private cabana areas, and three dining options. SeaWorld Orlando has also introduced a new flying roller coaster called Manta which provides glimpses of tropical fish as you fly by at speeds of 56 miles per hour.


Universal Orlando Resort

Earlier this year, Universal Orlando unveiled The Wizarding World of Harry Potter inspired by the series of book authored by J. K. Rowlings. Located fittingly at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter features multiple attractions like Hogwarts Castle and the Dragon Challenge, a high-speed roller coaster reaching with speeds of 60 miles per hour. The Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit is another new coaster with a high tech twist featuring a series of special effects, lights, and sounds.


Walt Disney World Resort
With the success of the television show, American Idol, at Walt Disney World Resort you can now take your own chance at becoming a star with the new interactive The American Idol Experience. Toy Story Mania is another new interactive attraction where visitors don 3-D glasses as you follow your way through a series of carnival type games. Celebrate a Dream Come True is a new parade featured at Magic Kingdom Park while Epcot has a new attraction called The Sum of All Thrills which lets you design your own ride and then allows you to climb onboard a 4-D simulator to test out your design skills.
